IWs Easter Fun
We have been enjoying some Easter fun with the breeders of IWs this weekend with a few events and contests.
On Thursday we started the fun with an Easter egg hunt. Breeders hunted high and low over all 4 sims to find 10 eggs containing a word or words that translated into 'the phrase that pays', which was - 'Real men wear Bunny ears' said Matt to Rowdy at the Bunny-Hop.
The breeders really hopped to it finding all those words and everyone who tracked down those eggs got a very special Easter surprise in the form of an April Fuzzy. These critters cannot be bought they only appeared from the contests so those taking part had a lovely surprise to tuck into this Easter instead of the usual chocolate.
DJ Matt took centre stage on Sunday from 12-2 bringing a Bunny Hop starting with 2k on the contest board for the best in Easter which then doubled to 4k as more and more of the oYo family turned up to rawk out.
The party goers all voted for the Queen or King of Easter with Luna Stormfeather taking top spot followed by Zandreah Montago and Ritzy Reese taking the rest of the spoils between them. It was a tough contest as everyone looked amazing.
We didnt stop there though we also had 4 raffle winner, the Single Easter Elephant went to Trace Grayson, DeadmanMoshing Blastmaster won the Single Easter Dodo, The Easter Dodo Pack went to Phayze Mirage and Ritzy Reese took the Easter Elephant Pack.
All those that went will be sent a little gift too.
Matt didn't let the fun stop at 2pm though because at 3pm he took the hot seat as quiz master general over at the reception area as the breeders formed teams or went solo for a special Easter Movie Music Quiz.
We had the P&T Team
Perry Trynatie Zandreah
Rowdy Ritzy Luna
The contestants had 30 tunes played to them and they had to name the movie that the song was from. The teams really got stuck in but it was Single Lady Seraphine Butler that took the top spot and trophy along with 3k. Seraphine rocked up a very impressive 25 points. In second place were Breeder Bunch with 17 points who scooped 2k and 15 points for third place P&T Team who took 1k home.
Well done Seraphine very impressive but im sure the other teams will be back to challenge you.
Finally we rounded up the weekends events with a Horse parade. We invited the breeders to come along dressed to impress on one of their favorite horses and award their efforts.
We invited new breeder DeagmanMoshing Blastmaster to be a guest judge and pick out his top 3. They were:
1st - Jewel Odenial
2nd - Phayze Mirage
3rd - Zandreah Montago
Trophes and izzies were sent to the top 3 plus a ribbon to everyone who took part and Manager Kels Foxclaw gave a special 'managers' trophy to:
1st - Ritzy Reese
2nd - Rowdy Reese
3rd - Katia Tyrell
We had a great Easter weekend and have already started planning more special events so if you feel like you missed out here don't worry more is to come.
We invited all our breeders and staff to take to the racetrack yesterday for some fun racing as well as a big prize payout Horse race. We split the racing in two sections All Staff Racing & All Breeders Racing.
Each section held the same prize. We had 3 fun races, Saber, Elephant and Dodo each carrying a 1st - 3rd place trophy and a ribbon for everyone and we finished with a 5k first place horse race, 3500 for second and 1500 for third each with a trophy as well and a ribbon for all.
We drew quite a crowd, not everyone is confident enough to ride themselves yet but these races certainly caught the interest of alot of people so in the future i think we will see more come along to enter even just the fun races and my goodness we did have fun.
We kicked off with the Saber fun race and let the staff go first to set an example to the breeders on how the track worked, however looking at the race times for each im not sure it was needed, the breeders seemed on fire yesterday.
Here are a full list of results and race times, most the races were very close it was down to the wire at times and we even had a tie for first!:

There was a clear winner Matt lead the race from the off and romped home without any issues bagging himself 5000 izzies. However some of those bends proved tricky for Kels & Luna but all made it back safely.
Breeders Horse Race
The breeders race didnt go as planned, sadly people dropped out and having not ever raced a horse before those there watching were keen to get some practise first before competing. So Rowdy ReeseJr was about to go unchallenged until an appeal to the crowd saw Matt Foxclaw step up and give little RJ a race. They were off with Matt taking an early lead but RJ stayed calm and composed to snatch first place and scoop 5000 izzies:
1st - Rowdy ReeseJr on RACER 16 RJ HORSE in 1:12.07
2nd - Matt Foxclaw on kissmybass in 1:19.24
It was quite the day at the races and we hope that people will now come join us for more racing in the near future. The track is open to all.
We painted the town green yesterday at our Inworldz St Patricks Day Party. Our breeders turned out in their finest green threads and we stuck up 3k on the contest board while our fantastic DJ Aurora played us some top tunes from the Emerald Isle.
The luck of the Irish was with several of our breeders as we had 5 raffle prize winners. First up was a pack of the BRAND NEW Splatter Pigs which went to Aurora Grayson, then Cato Oh took home a pack of the NEW St Patrick Tigers. Then we had 2 special horses up for grabs which were part of our naming contest for the Mustangs. We had Turmeric and Cherry Bomb, a Curry and a Red Mustang. Cara Bethia took home Turmeric and Cherry Bomb went home with Trynatie Mason. Our final raffle winner took home 2 new St Patrick Days Fuzzys which was Rowdy Reese.
After we danced our green shoes off all that was left to do was to vote for our favorite outfit which was split between 3 winners. Zandreah Montaho took the top spot with Ritzy Reese and Trynatie Mason splitting the remaining spoils.
A fun time was had by all the craic was great and the music got us all dancing.
